In the AFCON 2021 Group E, Algeria is a decisive favourite to win the table and qualify from the first position, according to online sports betting sites. Online bookies offer odds of 1.70 (-143 American; 7/10 Fractional) on Algerians to win Group E, the probability of around 55%.
Ivory Coast are the only rivals that may possibly intervene and hinder the advance of Algeria from the first place. Bookmakers offer odds of 2.40 (+140; 7/5) on Cote d’Ivoire to win Group E of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, which means a chance of around 40%.
However, the Ivorians are much more likely to come second, being the main favourites to do so with the betting odds of 2.00 (+100; 1/1) to do so, offered by online sportsbooks.
Both other teams of the AFCON 2021 Group E, Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone, are outsiders not likely to qualify for the knockouts at all, even as one of the four best third-placed teams. Each of these sides has a chance to win the group of less than 5%.
Group E starts its action on January 11 with a game Algeria vs Sierra Leone at 1 p.m. GMT. Ivory Coast place Equatorial Guinea in a match starting at 7 p.m. GMT on January 12.
The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations started on 9 January 2022 and will end on 6 February 2022.
